Art of Recovery provides our clients the opportunity to work as equal partners with professional artists to create original works of art.
Art of Recovery’s purpose is twofold fold:
- Raise critically needed funds to support services for both children and adults with severe mental illness and emotional disorders and limited financial resources. The funds raised are a combination the proceeds from silent art auction of the team’s artwork, the live auction of artwork donated by other professional artists in our community, the generosity of our many corporate partners and those who attend the event.
- Reduce the stigma associated with mental illness by providing our clients an opportunity to display their talents and to grow as individuals and as artists.
- The culmination their year’s work will be celebrated at the Art of Recovery ‘Seacoast Seen’ Art Auction on June 1, 2017 at the Atlantic Grill in Rye, NH. Emmy Award winning journalist and local Portsmouth artist Jay Schadler will be our Emcee. There will be music by classical guitarist Alan Lee Wilson. This year’s auctioneer is Bill Burns. Hors d’oeuvres will be served and there will be a cash bar.
The Art of Recovery is so much more than just the art and the celebration event. It is about the incredible journey of recovery our participants enjoy. Each piece of art has its own story.
